she was around florida and there was a little squabble and the next thing the cia director is being grilled and has to resign without any security aspect to it which is the case. so you are left with an affair that would have left uncovered and now maybe a moral argument against it if he were in the military, but as the cia dr director, and be the first to have an affair? >> no, nor the last, but he made the decision. >> if you had been there today doing the "today" show, how would you play this? >> well, i would not be judging him one way or another. >> but there is a journalistic feeling? >> well, some people feel there is an affair that would be wrong and some questions of national security, and we don't know. i think that we are still learning that, but if you just said that it is a relationship, an affair, that is anybody's business personally. that is necessarily affects what he does nor does it mean that someone should demand that he step down, but he made that decision. >> i think that every american should be sitting here tonight realizing that this could happen to them. >>
